The apathy that was a featuie of
U1I3 campaign up to ten dajs ago has
given place to a spirit and enthusiasm
among the Republican oteis and work
ers of the county that is a sure Index
of the victory that will be vton next
In no campaign of lecent jeais has
theie been such harmony and such
earnest, steadfast work upon the part
of all kinds and conditions of Repub
licans as In this one. It augurs well
not only for success in the present bat
tle but for tho success of Republican
ism In the future that such Is the case.
Lackawanna county, as It ought to be,
is safely Republican If Republicans
but do their duty. Eveiy member of
the pai ty ought not only vote, but see
to it that his neighbor otes. A case
which illustrates the necessity of eveiy
Republican exeiclslng the light that
desohes upon him as a citizen is fur
nished by the election of a county con
tiollpr last fall. Over 31,000 otes were
cast for that office and the plurality of
the successful candidate, E. A. Jones,
was but eleven votes. Let no man
say "my ote won't make arty differ
ence." It will make a diffeiencc, for
this county has had elections in which
one ote vvould have changed the icsult
for an office.
Theie will be a meeting of the
general Republican county committee
on Saturday at which the final plans
for Tuesday's battle will be discussed.
The icports that County Chairman H.
L Taylor has had from his committee
indicated that the people of the county
aie now fully alhe to the impoitance
of this election and that they nre de
termined to send Hon. AVillium Connell

A shot from a revolver In tho hnnd
of Mrs. Declan Kenealy Justgras'cd
Thomas Downs' head, and lodged in the
wall beside him. As tho woman was
raising her aim for a second shot, Shot
field caught hold of her and wrenched
tho weapon from her hand.
The shooting was the outcome of nn
alleged criminal assault by Downs on
Johannah, the 17-ycar-old daughter of
Mr. and Mis. Kenealy. Downs resides
with his wife on Irving avenue, in
South Scranton, and left his home on
Monday morning to look after some
coal he had picked.
He says he passed by the Kenealy
homo nnd spoke to tho members of tho
family, nnd shortly aftei wards the girl
came along the road In the direction In
which Downs was gojng, nnd asked him
if he would show her where to obtain
Eome empty cans to use as flower pots,
Downs s.iys he pointed out a place to
her, and did not notice her again until
he was returning home. Later In tho
day SI13. Kenealy went to tho Downs
home and told Mts. Downs that tho
glil accused Downs of committing an
assault on her.
When Downs lotuined home his wife
asked him about what had happened
and he denied the accusation, nnd
offered to call in a physician to ex
amine the girl. In the evening Slis. W.
B. Duggan, of the Associated Board of
Charities, was informed of the circum
stances. She went to the Kenealy home, and
learned from the patents that the girl
is weak-minded, and advised them to
diop the matter, and send the girl to
tho Hillside Home. It was apparent to
her, however, that the patents were
considerably wrought up over the al
leged assault and believed the girl's
The father went befoie Alderman
Ruddy and had a warrant issued for

Roth patties to tho suit weie seated

ing a tew steps towards Downs, diew
a 32-callbie levolver fiom her bieast,
and fliecl point-blank at him.
During all this, not a word was
spoken on either side, but when the
shot rang out, everything was in an
upioar. Several women in the loom
sci earned, and Constable Sheffield, who
w.ts sitting a few feet away fiom wheic
Slis, Kenealy sat, spiang forwaid and
caught the woman's mm as she was
about to lire the second shot.
He disarmed her, and later handed
the revolver over to the alderman. It
contained five caitildges and ono empty
shell. The ball flied lodged in the wall

the plusteiing fell on his shoulder. Ho
was not lnjuied, but was frightened so
badly that ho almost collapsed.

to kill Downs. The mother also tlueat
